A Scottish study published today in the prestigious medical journal the Lancet showed that weight loss averaging 10 kg achieved with a total diet replacement using a 853 kcal/day packaged powder formula for 3–5 months resulted in “remission” of Type 2 diabetes in almost 50% of participants at 12 months.  Patients considered in remission had normal or near-normal blood sugar levels without any diabetes medication.  Only 4% of patients treated in the usual way (standard diet and exercise recommendations and the use of medication as necessary) achieved remission. Patients qualifying for the study were on oral diabetes medication only (no insulin) and had diabetes for < 6 years.  

These are startling results that argue for more aggressive dietary interventions.  Click here for more information of this groundbreaking study.
